Inspired by...

...a book, film or song...that's the theme of this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin', sponsored this time by the fabulous  Crafts and Me.
 I think my card probably speaks for itself as to what the inspirational song is!
I used a Hampton Art wooden stamp that I've had for years, still love this cute image though! I stamped it with dark brown ink  onto cream dp, coloured the bells on his harness gold and glittered his nose dark red.  This was so quick to make, the background dp is really glittery and pretty, all I added was the ribbon, bells and berry cluster!
So glad you popped by today, hope to see you play along with us at Sweet Stampin'  this week  and there's plenty more inspiration from my lovely teamies to be seen by clicking here!
Have a lovely weekend

Wonderful card, Chris, such a lovely image with highlight on the nose, and love the little extra bits you've added on the side too.
By the way, I've just joined your blog, but for some reason known only to blogger I won't show up until you come to the greyed faces on your list, as that's what blogger has suddenly started giving me, I don't know why, but hope you might pop over my way too and reciprocate.
Delighted to be GDT member for Rudolph Day Christmas Challenge, thank you so much for sharing with us your creative inspiration.
